This topic describes the specifications of performance-enhanced cluster instances of ApsaraDB for Redis Enterprise Edition. These specifications include the memory capacity, number of concurrent connections to each instance, maximum bandwidth, and queries per second (QPS) reference value.

Calculation rules for bandwidth

  • If network resources are sufficient, the bandwidth is unlimited. However, if network resources are insufficient, the limit on maximum internal bandwidth takes effect.
  • The bandwidth value in the table refers to the bandwidth of the instance. It is the sum of bandwidth of all shards or nodes on the instance.
  • The upper limit of total bandwidth for a cluster or read/write splitting instance (as shown in the table) is 2,048 MB/s. After the upper limit is reached, the bandwidth cannot be increased even if the number of shards or nodes is increased.
  • The bandwidth applies to the upstream bandwidth and downstream bandwidth respectively. If the bandwidth of an instance is 10 MB/s, the upstream and downstream bandwidth of the instance are both 10 MB/s.
  • The bandwidth listed in the table is the internal bandwidth of the ApsaraDB for Redis instance. The Internet bandwidth is determined by the internal bandwidth and is limited by the bandwidth of the connection between the instance and a client. We recommend that you connect to the instance over an internal network to maximize the performance.

Calculation rules for connections

  • The following example explains the maximum number of new connections that can be added per second: The maximum number of new connections per second of an instance is 10,000. The maximum number of connections is 50,000. The actual number of connections at the Nth second after the instance starts to run is 12,000. Then, at the (N+1)th second, the number of connections is 22,000 (12,000 + 10,000).
  • The maximum number of new connections per second and the maximum number of connections are the sum of the corresponding values of all shards or nodes on the instance. After 500,000 is reached, the maximum number of connections cannot be increased even if the number of shards or nodes is increased.

FAQ

Q: Why does the maximum number of concurrent connections of my instance differ from that of the same instance described in this topic?

A: The maximum number of concurrent connections of some instance types may be adjusted after service upgrades. If the maximum number of concurrent connections of your instance is different than those described in this topic, refer to Change specifications and modify your instance configurations. You are not charged for the same instance type.
